What We Do

Kaniksu Land Trust is a not-for-profit organization that promotes healthy lands and healthy communities with the understanding that the two are inextricably linked. We facilitate voluntary land conservation by working with landowners to keep priceless lands intact. We also engage our community with land in order to overcome challenges related to health and education, and to encourage an ethic of longterm stewardship. By investing in Kaniksu Land Trust, you are helping to create abundant and restorative communities in north Idaho and northwest Montana. Thank You!
